Job Description

We are looking for a talented and experienced sports reporter to join award-winning national press agency Sportsbeat based in our London office in Twickenham.

We are primarily looking for a reporter with a good knowledge of rugby union, horse racing and football – but ideally who also has an interest and strong understanding of cricket and Olympic sports.

You'll have to love sport, be a team player and a great all-rounder, with the ability to use Quark XPress, InDesign and edit content to tight deadlines and have a strong knowledge of various content management systems.

Working with some of the biggest national governing bodies, major event organisers, sponsors and brands in European sport, this innovative content creator must also have a passion, knowledge and understanding of running and delivering across social media accounts.

As well as being a talented sub-editor and writer, we are looking for a reporter with a minimum of two years’ experience in a newsroom and knowledge of social media platforms – this is not a position for a journalism starter.

Candidates will need to have a full NCTJ diploma in journalism, including 100-words per-minute shorthand and should possess a full clean driving licence.

Enthusiasm and a love of digital media and working across social media accounts, as well as a track record in print is essential, plus have a flexible approach to working hours and weekends are a necessity. We are looking to fill the role promptly.

All applications should be submitted to Sportsbeat editor-in-chief David Parsons via email – dparsons@beatmediagroup.co.uk
